Awards and Recognition

Jack Baldwin Heart for Service AwardOur council’s and GSUSA’s formal adult recognition programs are designed to remind us of the truly significant service given by individuals. These council and national awards recognize outstanding accomplishments that go well beyond what is expected of the person in the position and reflect how the person’s service meets or exceeds defined criteria.

The significance and impact of Girl Scout volunteers cannot simply be measured in years of service, but in the impact on the young women whose lives are enriched by the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

GSUSA and council awards are presented at the annual council meeting in April.

Service unit awards are a way to recognize volunteers and community partners in your service unit. They are presented at the service unit’s end-of-year recognitions celebration or other appropriate event.

For tips on writing nominations and more ways to honor our great volunteers check out our Volunteer’s Guide to Adult Recognitions.
